    Default Login problem - Windows 7, 64 bit

    This could be posted to the v9 WAS forum too. When I log in to my application on either v9 or v10, I get passed the login screen, which suggests to me that the login was successful. However, the function:

    a5ws_logged_in_user_values(pUser,request,session)
    ?pUser.userid returns a null value, i.e., it is empty.

    Does this have something to do with permissions on Windows 7 64 bit? I have no trouble when I run the application on a machibe with Vista, or XP.

    The security has been tested regularly on Windows 7 64 bit and there are no known problems associated with the operating system.

    Hi Jerry,

    Do you have any ideas what could be causing this problem for me?

    The function "a5ws_Logged_In_User_Values()" will only return values if the security framework is active, the project security is on, all of the security files have been published to the server, you are NOT running in Live Preview, and a user is actually logged in. The context for the function is important as well as running the function in some grid events require different syntax for the system "request" and "session" variables. If the function is on a page, they don't even need to be supplied.

    A simple test to see if a login is successful is to select the security settings option to "Enable external user identifier field" (ulink), add a session variable name, and set a value in the ulink field for a user. Publish the settings (and data files if needed), log that user into the system, and check the value of the session variable. If the session variable does not exist, the security framework is off or you are running in Live Preview. Otherwise, its value is set at the same time as the user login is validated

    Jerry,

    Thanks for your, once again, helpful reply.

    Silly me - I did not have security turned on - DUH!

    Thanks again!
